Storyline

Trevor is a young man who has been sentenced to a long stay in a mental hospital after brutally killing his girlfriend.

Trivia

The producers negotiated free scanning for the digital effects sequences from one of the leaders in the industry. The night before the digital effects work was to start on the film, the small effects house that had agreed to do the work for the film on a deferred basis backed out. Within the week, the filmmakers were meeting with Manex Effects, one of the biggest houses, and the people responsible for the Academy Award-winning effects in "The Matrix". Manex designed and created almost two dozen digital effects shots for "The Attic Expeditions." See more »

Goofs

Near the end when Trevor and Faith are making love, you can see the actor is wearing a flesh-tone g-string. As they are sitting and talking in the follow scene, you can see the "string" part on his hips. See more »

Quotes

Ronald: Trevor, you got to get me out of here, I don't know what's happening to me. I can't tell you who I am because my can't remember a damn thing. My mind is all fucked up in this damn puppet head, but I swear to you as God is my witness, I am not this guy's hand!

Total crap
18 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

Edgy? Stylish? Though-provoking?

More like Unoriginal, Stupid, and Confusing. This movie was a monumental letdown, all things considered. For starters, the plot was a messy rehash of several other "successful" movies. The writer must have been watching Fight Club, Vanilla Sky, and the Truman Show on 3 different TVs and thought "Wow, if I could only rip all 3 of these off, I could make the most mind-bogglingly retarded waste of film known to man!" The main character, Noname McNeedsActingLessons, looked like some horribly distorted charicature of George W. Bush. Seth Green, who enjoyed fame in questionably "mainstream movies," figured he could make an easy paycheck with this one by doing a bad Brad Pitt impression from 12 Monkeys. The plot jumps so much from one ripoff to another that I can just see the director thinking, "I can't wait until THIS scene, it'll blow their minds." Why yes, it did blow my mind... I WAS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WAS GOING ON! "But it's deep man," says the director, pointing out all the complex metaphors. About as deep as Corky Romano. Ted Raimi's character, apparently commenting on the plot, said it best, "There's too many variables." Yes, Ted, too many indeed.

Skip this one. If you fall into a trap and happen to see it, skip forward to Ted Raimi's scenes. He's the savior to an otherwise convoluted mess of pretentious crap.
